WEEP FOR KANSAS CITY MURDER COUNT AND CRIME SPIKE @ TONIGHT'S MARYVILLE DATE RAPE ALLEGATION VIGIL!!!
We're already hearing back that the Jackson County prosecutor's office has been hampered by "Mean" Jean working on the Maryville case instead of taking care of Kansas City's business and consistent wave of local violence and crime.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY CRIME ENDURES A 4TH QUARTER SPIKE THAT INCLUDES CAR BREAK-IN SPREES, MORE SHOOTING AND A CONSISTENTLY HIGH MURDER RATE!!! MEANWHILE THE LOCAL PROSECUTOR IS FOCUSED ON A HIGH-PROFILE OUT OF TOWN CASE!!!
Sadly, online and in the mainstream media the coverage and perception of this case is mostly biased and already played out.
Even questioning the group-think and forced logic is tagged as "blaming the victim" . . .
For the record . . . TKC doesn't care about the victim or this media circus he said/she said case given that our blog community is much more concerned about local resources drained to increase the media profile of a local politico who has problems of her own in her district to address . . . More on that later.
For now . . . Check a few worthwhile links that have been lost in the mix.
